WANDER

IMG_5532

Went for a stroll last Sunday morning with Dan and I started to let my mind drift. I thought about many things, from endless to-do lists, upcoming travel plans, to other trivial matters. We were in our own bubble for a good 20 minutes. That's what I love about us, we can enjoy each other's company and the silence at the same time. He taught me to always live in the moment, that's one of the main reasons why I have not been using Snapchat lately. Is it that important to tell the world, what we are doing in that exact moment? I have nothing against it, just my two cents worth. I'll still be on Snapchat though, probably snapping to share beautiful monuments/places when I travel. My sisters used to get annoyed because I was constantly on my phone when I was in the States last summer. I realized too, that I wasn't enjoying myself completely. I was always finding ways to get that 5 minutes of wifi. Really glad I snapped out of it (pun totally not intended), I try not to use my phone whenever I'm with friends, unless of course when it's time to take food photos or ridiculous selfies together. What's the point of meeting when half the attention is diverted to the little rectangle gadget? I've been feeling lighter and much happier these days, I'm not sure what is it that is making me feel this way but I feel inspired every morning when I get up from bed. Let's hope it stays this way!

WHITE OUT

IMG_5517
Isn't it just the best feeling ever when you don't have to rack your brains out on matching your outfit with your shoes? Alohas Sandals got that settled for me when I received my pair. When you live in such a humid country, it feels like summer everyday and these sandals literally replaced my flip flops.   Needless to say, I spend lesser time in dressing up for days that I want to dress down, do I even make sense? Alohas Sandals are made in Spain, designed in Barcelona and inspired by Hawaii, all 3 places in my list of 'To Visit' countries/cities, plus they come in so many colors that you'll be spoilt for choice. I have so much love for you, Alohas Sandals!

Hair by Jason Sim, Artistic Director of #1 Salon. Wearing Love Beverly Minimal Heart Necklace.

For those who don't know, my hair is one thing I care the least for. I've only been getting an occasional $5 hair cut from my Mom's friend throughout my youth. I've never colored, permed or straightened my hair before, and I got a little bored of how my hair looked after some time. After attending the L'Oreal Professionnel Hair Show for Singapore Fashion Week, I had the privilege of getting some hair lovin' treatment from one of L'Oreal's partner salons. I went for a shorter length plus a perm. Honestly, I've always had second thoughts after cutting my hair but this time, I actually really love how my hair looks. 
-
The L'Oreal team also sent this lovely package of hair products and here's how this includes you! I''ll be giving away 2 sets L'Oreal hampers worth $120 each and all you have to do is follow both L'Oreal and myself on Instagram and comment done after! I'll be selecting 2 winners randomly at the end of the month.

Good luck, x!

MONDAY BLUES

IMG_5517
The title of my post is actually the complete opposite of how I'm feeling right now. Feeling really grateful for all that has happened this year. Both good and bad. The good would be the 5 trips in the past 6 months, the opportunities and the people I've met. While on the other hand, applying to a design job interview only to have your designs stolen instead. Seeing the ugly side of the industry and realising that not everyone is as true as what they portray themselves to be. I took in all these as lesson learnt and it made me even stronger. I've had unconditional love and support from my loved ones and I couldn't thank them enough. Literally can't wait for the year to end so I can see my family in the States next Spring. 

Shot these photos for a collaboration with Marjorie and I received countless of compliments on how great this pair of pleated pants look. I wore this pleated beauty for Her World's Street Style Awards which you can view here! It's so effortless yet chic, I couldn't help but to choose this in 2 colors. I will be featuring 2 more items that they sent to me over the next week!

CHASING LIGHT

IMG_5517
Back in Singapore and visited the Dreamworks exhibition with Dan. My trip to Hua Hin & Bangkok was such an amazing adventure. Took many photos which I can't wait to share with you guys! Also some of you may have noticed my new hair cut on my Instagram, I finally decided to go shorter with a perm. Will be doing a full post on my hair and stay close because you'll get to win some goodies for yourself as well! We snapped these photos after the exhibition and it seemed to be one of the hottest days so far. At least the weather can be an excuse to indulge in ice cream and iced chocolates am I right?

SHARING A LUGGAGE

IMG_5532
In no less than 6 hours, I'll be off to the airport with Dan for a beach getaway, so I'm going to keep this short. 
Dan and I will be sharing a luggage and I thought it'll be fun to share with you guys what we have in it. 
Let's start with tops! 
IMG_5532
IMG_5532
We made an effort to try and match our outfits with each other, and of course avoiding identical outfits. So we 
packed in tropical printed tops and shorts.

& since it's a week long trip to the beach, mixing and matching bikinis are definitely way more fun than just bringing one.

What's a beach getaway without denim shorts?

Let's not forget the accessories, get your sun busters and fruity lip balms all packed and you're..

CITY SKY

IMG_5532
So the weekend was spent in the heart of the city, wearing one of my favourite looks. Outerwear worn as a dress from the loveliest team over at Marjorie. Definitely one of my favourite pieces, it's effortless plus in the perfect shade of pink. The versatility of this vest is endless, works both ways when dressing down or up. I'm really excited to share with you the other pieces I've chosen from this collaboration with them. Speaking of weekends, I can't wait for the next one. I'll be spending 3 days in Hua Hin with Dan and the remaining 4 days we'll be in Bangkok city. Trying my best to fit everything into one luggage, and yes the packing guide post is coming up next.

SWAN LAKE

IMG_5517
Hi everyone, I'm alive and back for good after a month of not posting. Sincere apologies to those who were waiting for a new post. These photos were shot in Lumphini Park, Bangkok during my trip last month and guess what, I'll be heading back again for the third time this year. There's something about the city that pulls me back every time. Also, because of the 40° weather, it called for a wardrobe change. Lighter colors, sleeveless tops, culottes and sandals. I'll definitely be packing these essentials for my next trip. Maybe a packing guide for the summer?

I can finally share some photos I took during my trip to Paris. We took a train out from London and arrived at about mid day. We spent a good 40 minutes getting lost, walking in rounds trying to find our apartment. Thankfully with the help of some locals, we managed to locate the building that we so desperately needed to settle in to. We couldn't wait to explore the beautiful city and to create some perfectly parisan memories. 

1. Eiffel Tower: Needless to say, it was magical and romantic. Dan got me a little Eiffel Tower keyring with a black bow to mark that Paris was a city we've visited together. 

2. Musée du Louvre: The ceilings of The Louvre was what intrigued me most, till I had a slight neck ache after we were done from the day.

3. Père Lachaise Cemetery: The largest cemetery in the city of Paris, it was so calm and peaceful. Nothing eerie at all. Walked about an hour to get to Oscar Wilde's tomb and it started to hail. (not kidding) Jim Morrison's tomb is also at this cemetery.

4. Galeries Lafayette: The French upmarket department store and also my favourite building of Paris. The interior is amazing, I felt like an actual Princess in a castle.

5. Champs-Élysées: Everyone was buying Chanel, Prada and Louis Vuitton but my sole attention was on buying Pierre Hermé macarons. Only.

6. Notre-dame de Paris: Yet another mind blowing architectural amazingness.

7. Pont de l'Archevêché bridge: Something I wanted to do for a long time, and I'm glad it was with Dan. The love lock bridge is of walking distance from the Notre-dame cathedral.

Other places we went to was the Palais Garnier and the Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile. In all, Paris was such a beautiful city, definitely a trip to remember. You can view my Postcards from New York here

Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures, all my love always, x
